It is the employment policy of the Board of the Tamworth Christian Education Association that all employees meet the following criteria.

All Teaching and Non Teaching Staff:

  • be committed Christian people who are actively involved in a local Christian church;
  • be prepared to see their work as contributing to the cause of Christ in the school;
  • be willing to uphold, safeguard and promote the ethos of the school in the local community;
  • model a lifestyle that reflects Christian practice and beliefs in their everyday work and life;
  • subscribe wholeheartedly to the understanding of the biblical doctrines of grace expounded in the first 20 Chapters of the Westminster Confession of Faith;

All Teaching Staff:

  • have at least Provisional or Conditional Accreditaion with NESA;
  • be committed to strive for the highest standards of professional competence and be prepared to pursue personal professional growth;
  • must embrace the following practices as fundamental to the educational process in the teaching of children at Carinya;
    • children are to be taught and valued as individuals, made in the image of God, on purpose and for a purpose;
    • the talents and abilities of each child are regarded as gracious gifts from the Lord Jesus and are to be valued equally in the classroom and in the school community;
    • children are to be intrinsically motivated, taught to find reward in using the abilities they have been given by the Lord: in the process and as an outcome of their learning, they are encouraged to "seek the reward in the task" and not in extrinsic prizes, reward or public recognition: "coming first" and "beating" classmates are not worthy reasons for children to learn;
    • children are expected to develop and use their abilities and do their best in whatever they do: they are encouraged to be "faithful";
    • students are taught in classrooms characterised by community and co-operation not rivalry and competition.

In the pursuit of a safe learning environment, Carinya Christian School is a smoke and alcohol-free environment.
